The philosophy behind ‘The Breast Centre’
The Breast centre started with a vision of delivering world-class comprehensive care breast care under one roof. Breast cancer is the number one cancer among Indian women and accounts for 14% of all cancers in women. In urban areas, 1 in 22 women is likely to develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Of these 1 in 2 may not survive. Our team offers a seamless blend of medical expertise, compassion and state-of-the-art technology to offer one-on-one attention to each patient. We emphasise awareness about breast cancer as well as breast cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of the same. We also treat a wide range of benign and/or congenital breast conditions making us a one-stop destination for coordinated breast health services. We are also one of the best centres for secondary breast reconstruction (cancer-free women who want to have their breasts back).
Breast health services include

Breast cancer treatment depends include Breast cancer is treated depending upon breast surgeries, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and more.
Oncoplastic Breast Preservation SurgeryLoss of breasts during Breast Cancer treatment is not acceptable. Oncoplastic Breast Preservation is the answer to it. It involves resection of Breast cancer along with Neo(new) Breast formation, either in form of Breast Preservation (Conservation) or Breast Reconstruction. Oncoplasty in other words means amalgamation of techniques of breast cancer resection and aesthetic breast correction providing safer cancer removal and preservation/reconstruction of breasts.

Common diseases include cysts, fibroadenoma, fibrocystic breast changes and hyperplasia. Treatments depend upon the type of condition and the severity of the symptoms. We offer advanced diagnostic methods for benign conditions to offer you the ultimate peace of mind without any delays.
Risk assessment & preventionThe Breast Centre provides precision-driven screening for early detection of breast cancer for women between the ages of 25 – 80 years of age. Thorough risk evaluation measures and checkpoints including clinical breast examination (CBE) and tactile breast examination (TBE) are offered to calculate your prospects and offer tailor-made protocols to prevent breast cancer.

Whether your surgical intervention is due to breast cancer or benign breast diseases, scarless surgeries is a treatment alternative for both. Latest modular techniques such as vacuum-assisted breast biopsy are used to achieve a scarless and unaltered appearance of the breast.

We offer digital mammography, ultrasound, tomography and computed tomography scans and biopsy facilities to ensure a prompt and accurate diagnosis that help our physicians better understand disease development and offer correct treatments in a timely manner.
